Cake Decorating Community - Cakes We Bake

For some reason my black fondant is always really sticky.... I know how to solve that problem. My problem is how do I make it shine when I'm done? I'm always left with 10x sugar that I can't dust off my black fondant. I know I'm missing something here. Please help. What is the trick?

.........It evaporates very quickly so no alcohol is left behind............


This is not totally true.  For yrs we had been told that *ALL* alcohol evaporates in cooking/baking but more recent test show that only about 30-50% does :(  For someone who is an alcoholic this can be a major problem.  Yes, *most* of it will evaporate but there will be some left.

As for children eating it.........I would not be the least bit concerned as the amount there is so little:) 

Since there is another way to solve this problem I suggest we all use it. (the oil/shortening rubdown.)

I agree with the shortening method atho Ive never tried steaming. The weather here has a over 90%humidity evel so got to be careful with even steaming but I will try and see how it goes tho'.
